    Israel's military has said it will investigate the death of civilians in Gaza after an attack that it originally said targeted a leader of the Islamic Jihad group.

    A senior commander of the group was killed by the Israelis on Tuesday.

    Islamic Jihad responded by firing rockets into Israel - which then led to retaliatory fire from Israel, killing 34 people in Gaza.

    A ceasefire agreed on Thursday remains fragile.
